After Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that he would quickly use Executive Order to repeal the Affordable Care Act, one GOP Representative, who is also on Trump’s Transition Team, decided it would be a good idea to conduct a Twitter Poll on the issue.
Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R – TN) asked “Do you support the repeal of Obamacare? RT if you do, and share what you want to see as the replacement.” You have to think she was CERTAIN about what America would say before she asked the question, but it didn’t go as planned.
After nearly 8,000 votes, Blackburn’s poll stood at only 14% YES and 86% NO.

Funny how the poll is now closed so no one else can vote. Clearly, the vote got out of hand against Republicans rather quickly.
Before you stick your neck out there like that it’s probably a good idea to know what the outcome is going to be, because you are likely going to look like a complete idiot if things do not turn out the way you thought they would.
It likely doesn’t matter, as Republicans are going to completely ignore what the American people want anyway, but this can’t be the result that Blackburn expected to see.
